    Yuba Mundo Recall

    Yuba has issued a recall of their 4.0 Mundo bikes. Apparently, a passenger's foot can get caught in the spokes of the rear wheel (I imagine this could happen on any bike).

    As a result, they will ship you a free set of wheel covers for the back wheel.

    Contact info:

    I called them and they picked up on the 2nd ring. Asked for the wheel cover, and he apologized that it couldn't ship out today, but would be in the mail by tomorrow.

    Awesome customer service

    It is a decent response to an issue which seems common sense.

    However, I bought and installed a set when building up my Mundo and am considering removing them.

    They don't work very well with a V-brake. As far as I can see releasing the rear brake now requires removal of the wheel covers. ie those covers need to come off to adjust the brake or, of more immediate concern, to remove the rear wheel in the event of a puncture.

    First thoughts for work arounds are;
    re-useable zip ties
    cut out cover around v-brake area
    use a disc rear. Although adjusting a BB7 might still be impossible with cover in place, but at least wheel removal wouldn't require taking off the cover.

    I'm running with Xtracycle freeloaders so I could remove the covers all together and little legs would still be safe, but the freeloaders would be more at risk of rubbing on frame and parts at contact points.

    I think I'll contact Yuba and see if they have come up with any other solutions.

    Hopefully the wheel covers are easy to cut/modify. Maybe putting some holes in it would provide spots to attach bungee cords or straps.

    To help prevent my son from getting his foot caught in my V3 I attached some cheap, rectangular wire racks to both sides. Cost me about 3 dollars. Protects feet and also provides many bungee hook attachment points.
